CAMILLE'S FIESTA ~ MEXICAN THEME BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS

Celebrating your birthday with a Mexican Fiesta is a sure way to have a great time!  My daughter and several of her friends had a ball with all of the bright colors and (hopefully) vivid memories of a beautiful party day full of fun!  Planning all of the party ideas and details was loads of fun- although we don't claim to have everything authentically perfect- this is our take on a party that combines Mexican birthday party ideas with a young girl's likes and wishes!  For instance, we know hedgehogs don't hail from Mexico- but when she fell in love with a festive-looking hedgehog at a local shop, we decided the hedgehog would make a perfectly fun party favor!  So read on and enjoy- and hopefully you will find an idea or two that you can use for a Mexican-themed party or even a Cinco de Mayo celebration, too- and inspiration to incorporate ideas that make your party perfectly-suited for the birthday child!

MY FAVORITE THINGS BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS

When someone asks me to suggest a good idea or theme for their child's birthday party, my first question is always,  "...What is his/her favorite thing right now?".  I think it is always the best idea to throw a party based on what the guest of honor loves- and so I am thrilled to share this "Favorite Things" birthday party from Jenny at Bloom Designs!  Jenny incorporated many, many of her daughter's favorites into her 12th birthday party- from the location to the desserts to the activities!  This party is full of great birthday party ideas for how to tie together lots of favorites and make it all fit together so well!  Enjoy all of the fun of Audrey's Favorite Things!
